Can a Drop Down Box Fill Color Change Based on the Selection in the Box?
I’m using FileMaker 10, and am now working on a music collection database. There are six genres of music, and each genre is color-coded.
I’ve created a field that is a drop-down box with six different colors:
Now…here’s what I want to do with the layout, if it’s possible: I’d like the fill color for the drop down box to change to the color I’ve selected.
For example, if I select Green, I want the fill color for the box to change to a light green (light, so I can read the text). Or, if I select Yellow, I want the drop-down box to change to a light yellow fill color.
Is this possible to do? Is it simple or complicated?
If it’s complicated, then is it possible to create a separate drop-down menu that contains colors, instead of text?
None of this is really a big deal, and if it’s not possible, or too difficult, I can live without it. But if it can be done, and can be easy enough for a novice to do, then I’d like to try it.
